The White House cut off President Biden’s microphone right after a reporter asked a question regarding the current Afghanistan withdrawal crisis and what he will do if Americans remain in the country after his Aug. 31 deadline.
Fox News reports:
As he wrapped up a meeting on cybersecurity in the State Dining Room, Biden dismissed the press as they continued to ask questions. However, he appeared to answer one reporter’s query before leaving.
NBC’s Peter Alexander asked, “If Americans are still in Afghanistan after the deadline what will you do?”
The White House then proceeded to cut off the audio feed from Biden’s response. It was unclear if the maneuver was coincidental or done to prevent feed viewers from hearing any off-the-cuff comments.
Alexander later confirmed the exchange and noted Biden answered, “You’ll be the first person I call.
Alexander tweeted about the exchange.
I asked President Biden what he will do if Americans are still in Afghanistan after the 8/31 deadline.
His response: “You’ll be the first person I call.”

Members of the media have been growing increasingly frustrated with Biden’s lack of communication with the press, especially after he campaigned on claims his administration would be more transparent.
Please run in 2024!!!! These asswipes can’t control anything. Afghanistan is now bleeding American blood again! Biden is pathetic and has to go!!!
Worse yet was his aimless, confused look thumbing through that note book. Sadly, it’s becoming painfully obvious his handlers and their buds in the MSM are complicit in shielding his deteriorating cognitive condition.. Note the absence of wife Jill, visiting dignitaries, state dinners or appearances other than absolutely necessary.
Possibly more criminal in nature than the coon thats pulling his strings.
